My wife and I stayed here in April of 2013. Despite it being off a main road, you feel like you're out in an English village once inside. The place is quaint and cute with a European feel to it.
The lobby was well cared for, the service was very good, and the room we were in was more than ample. A small breakfast was had in in the morning in a very pretty dining area just off the lobby. It's your standard complimentary items such as; toast, bagels, cereals and coffee or tea.
There is no food service in this hotel other than the morning offerings and an afternoon tea, but there's a very good steak house virtually 40 - 50 feet away. There are numerous other dining options in the immediate area as well.
It appears this hotel gets a mixed review from what I am seeing, but I think it's a case of if you're looking for a Sheraton or some majorly big hotel, this isn't for you. However, if you just want something nice, perhaps more like a bed and breakfast, then this nice little gem will do just fine.
One final note, there are a number of attractions not far away - especially recommended is Longwood Gardens.
